Indeed, it is always the budget that limits when choosing. In this case, it will not be compulsory to buy the most expensive seat for the best quality. In the case of antares saddles, even second-hand models will offer optimal efficiency. Otherwise, there is the size and shape of the saddle. These two criteria will depend mostly on the discipline you will engage in.
Its aesthetic and other criteria
Certainly, aesthetics will not directly interfere with the effectiveness of the saddle. But this is an important criterion. Indeed, when purchasing the item, it will necessarily require that you like it. It is your comfort of use that it is. Next comes the choice of monoquartier saddles.
